Children and Exercise XXVIII presents the latest scientific research into paediatric exercise physiology, endocrinology, kinanthropometry, growth and maturation, and youth sport. Including contributions from a wide-range of leading international experts, the book is arranged into seven thematic sections addressing:
- Cardiovascular responses to exercise
- Genetics, metabolism and physical activity
- Limiting factors of muscle exercise
- Respiratory responses to exercise
- Epidemiology in physical activity and obesity
- Physical activity and nutrition
- Metabolic disorders and exercise
Offering critical reviews of current topics and reports of current and on-going research in paediatric health and exercise science, this is a key text for all researchers, teachers, health professionals and students with an interest in paediatric sport and exercise science, sports medicine and physical education.
